As you know, New York’s Senate voted against equal marriage on December 2nd.
What you didn’t know is this completely and totally the Democrats’ fault. No really, the
Lost Confused Log Cabin Republicans say so, it must be true (via Political Wire, h/t Balloon Juice commenter Nellcote):
Today we share in the frustration and disappointment that the Senate did not pass the marriage equality bill. We are deeply saddened that the Democratic Conference failed to secure the votes they promised, undermining the possibility of a credible bipartisan vote of conscience on the merits of marriage equality. Winning marriage equality in New York requires the Democrats to keep their promises, and Log Cabin will continue to work to ensure that Republicans vote their conscience [Psst! They can’t vote what they don’t got lads – ed.] when that finally happens.
Now my first thought was “What, what, what are they smoking*?” Then I thought I’d check the final vote tally and discovered, yes, it is all completely the Democrat’s fault because every Republican voted Yes.
You didn’t believe that did you? Good.
Since you can read, it should only take you a moment to look at this vote tally (or you could just take a wild fucking guess) and determine every single Republican voted No. That is, they voted against a bill that would allow equal marriage in N.Y. That is, if enough of them had voted Yes, the schmucks at LCR wouldn’t have had to stop eating dirt and boogers to write that … that … whatever the fuck it is.
That is, someone is out of their ever lovin’ mind and it isn’t me.
I’m not sure how the 25 watt bulbs over at LCR would explain this, because from where I’m standing one of two things happened:
1. The Republicans didn’t “vote their conscience.” They secretly wanted to vote for marriage equality but … O.K., I’m laughing too hard to finish that one.
2. The Republicans did vote their conscience, their consciences told them no, so LCR’s vow to “ensure that Republicans vote their conscience when that finally happens,” is … It’s … Well, the mind recoils from the task of describing the stunning mix of inanity and idiocy in full detail.
Although the name Sarah Palin keeps springing to mind.
And please, no one say “self hating.” For one thing, you have to have a certain level of awareness to hate yourself and the members of the LCR ain’t got it.
In completely unrelated but hilarious news, this.
